There’s nothing that soothes our souls quite like chocolate.
The decadent treat is something we’re quick to add to cart. Whether we’re after a cheeky 3pm sugar hit or need a bit of nurturing when it’s that time of the month – rich, deliciously sweet, and moreish to say the least – we can’t get enough of the stuff. So much so that now we’re injecting our beauty routines with a sampling of chocolatey goodness too.
Can you imagine a multi-dimensional chocolate haze of eyeshadow all over those stunning peepers of yours? Because we can. How about milk choc-lacquered nails? Um, yes please.
Great, then get a load of this lineup. You’re looking at five chocolate-inspired winners baby – enjoy!
HUDA BEAUTY Brown Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
Is it just us or does the idea of getting to use this rich array of metallic, shimmer and matte shadows give you chills? Just us? Okay, good to know. Create a hectic smokey chocolate vision using the high-impact glitter pans in the palette or keep it low-key with the neutral-tones of the matte shades. Either way you’re going to be looking like a snack.
Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquid Matte Eye Shadow
Tryna look delicious lickety-split? Then this whipped liquid choc shadow is your new best friend. There are eight nudie tones to choose from for that airbrushed, flawless neutral eye look we’re all after, or you can double down and use this little guy as a primer for your powder shadows. Plus, with 24-hours of crease-free wear and the antioxidant-rich additions of vitamin E and cocoa butter, your makeup’s not only going to last but you can look forward to some serious conditioning benefits. Score.
Beauty Bakerie Coffee & Cocoa Bronzer Palette
Love a multi-tasker? This bronzer palette from black and female owned Beauty Bakerie packs in four shades of buttery bronze-hued goodness that can also double as eyeshadows if you’re so inclined. A must-have for deeper skin tones? Sure. But it has to be said, regardless of skin tone you are gonna enjoy maximum colour payoff, thanks to the satin-finish, long-lasting formula of this palette. In our opinion, this one is designed to be shared.
Clinique My Happy Cocoa & Cashmere
Love the smell of freshly baked goodies? Then this cheap as chips spritz is for you. Conjuring up evenings spent cuddled in cashmere and nibbling at a square of dark chocolate, this fragrance is a comforting olfactory embrace from start to finish. Cocoa absolute, vanilla and musk notes tempt you almost instantly, but it’s the joyful addition of jasmine, honeysuckle and pear that make this happy scent really sing.
OPI Nail Enamel Chocolate Moose
Channel your inner ‘90s music video vixen and lacquer on a set of freshly painted chocolate nails. This warm-leaning hue is the perfect neutral to add to your autumnal or winter nail wardrobe, and a must-have to complete any office ensemble. Just keep this brown-neutral in your handbag for quick in-office touch-ups – don’t worry, we won’t tell.
